Chelsea manager Tuchel claims Mount future has 'no limits'

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says there are 'no limits' on Mason Mount's future as he described the England international as the 'full package'.

Tuchel dropped Mount for his first game in charge of Chelsea back in February.

But the 22-year-old eventually worked his way back into the team and has become a regular under Tuchel ever since.

"There are no limits. He has the full package," Tuchel told Sky Sports of Mount ahead of Wednesday's Premier League game with Arsenal.

"He is incredibly talented and even more importantly, he has the personality at a very young age to keep his feet on the ground, to arrive every day at Cobham with a smile on his face. Mason is simply happy to be out there on the pitch and playing football. It doesn't make a difference if he is playing short-sided games, or four against four or if he plays out there in boxes.

"It's what he would do if he was not a professional player, he would be in the park and would do the same stuff and I have a feeling he is very aware of how he arrived at this point in his career. It makes him very self-confident, it makes him appear very humble and very hungry to learn and these are the big circumstances to have a big career.

"He is crucial for our game, he is an absolutely key player and he deserves all the support that we give him."
